Google Glass is still only in “explorer” or beta stage, but that doesn’t mean Google isn’t going to start figuring out ways to sell consumers on having the product in their lives. In a video posted to the Glass YouTube channel this afternoon, we get to join along in the preparation of a professional tennis player in the days leading up to Wimbledon.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands, a solid doubles player, is the star of the show. She shows how Glass helps keep her organized using packing lists for her trip to England, on-time for appointments thanks to daily itineraries , and catching flights with travel and flight info cards. She also uses glasses as a training tool by pulling up recipes for smoothies and recording clips of her practice sessions.
It’s videos like these that will help Google sell Glass to consumers once there are retail versions available. One of the major selling points of Glass is to allow it seamlessly fit into your life, yet still help make it more efficient – which this video shows.
I’m curious, what are your thoughts on Google Glass now that it has been in the hands of developers for a few months? We still aren’t sure why people are reviewing it, but assuming you have looked at reviews, are you more or less excited about wearable techie headgear?
